    This isn't twitter where you need to send updates of your date, such as waiting line

    Where did you start lining up? Is there any sort of organization since the mall doesn't open until 8? Are people lining up at every door?

    I think in Nashua they only open the doors by the Food Court? That's probably where everyone is lining up.

    You guys going to maintain your line order, or is it a running free-for-all to the Apple storefront? I'd go if people were decent about it and agreed to maintain the same line positions inside :p

    It was a mad fast walk dash. Now the person with the list is talking to the mall cops.

    Lots of arguing.

    LOL. SMH. Its sad that people will ignore morals by disregarding the list, thinking they have every right to be first if they won the track meet to the store. Just sad. I hope it all works out in favor of the list

    List is no go. A guy just got thrown out for getting into it with a cop.

    Wow, that sucks. Try to instill a bit of order to the insanity, and look what it gets you...

    Did you make out better than the list position, or worse? Not sure I want to deal with a bunch of ---holes with these mall door openings. Too bad the mall is our only option in Maine and NH for Apple stores.

    To be honest I didn't make out better or worse

    I stood in line - about #60 out of approximately 100 plus people on Tuesday (my one day off) from 8:00 to about 11:30. They then announced no Ipads today but would definitely have them on Wednesday and would open at 9.

    Do you know have they had some in stock every day? Would like to try again on Tuesday but hate to lose another 3.5 hours of my life - not including the 60 min drive.

    Good luck in Nashua same scalpers as Salem nh. The Salem store has a sign up at the store front saying all inventories will be sold at 8am every morning which is what weve heard from certain stores was surprise to see a sign about it tho.

    No luck. Everyone bought two. One guy was handing out cash to kids. This is just redicilous.

    Were you able to nab one at Salem? They stared selling at 8AM? How many?

    Trying to decide if I want to go fight the scalpers in Nashua or Salem to get an AT&T model next week or not. :D

    He's just saying on a Saturday you'll have EVERYONE there- scalpers, desperate people who've been trying all week, and then the new people who had to work all week and couldn't wait in line until Saturday. It'll be a damn mess at every Apple store in the USA tomorrow :(

    I am serious, just stick to calling targets and ordering online. it ain't worth it. There were literally a dozen college kids working for one guy to buy the iPads.
